    Fascinating, fun, interesting for 2 teens, 2 seniors, great guide.

    Greenwich Village is full of history and is still a great contributor of arts and activism in NYC. The guide did a great job of being informative but not dry. All info was conveyed with knowledge, great attitude, smiles-he was a great storyteller. The walking was easy for us seniors. The teens were totally engaged. I will look for more of your tours as the occasion arises.
